IAEA inspectors visit Iranian nuclear site


JERUSALEM (JTA) — A team of inspectors from the United Nations nuclear watchdog reportedly visited a nuclear facility in Iran.

A report that the team from the International Atomic Energy Agency visited the newly disclosed underground uranium enrichment site Sunday came from Iran’s semi-official Mehr news agency and was picked up by news services around the world.

The unsourced report said the four inspectors would visit the site a second time. They are scheduled to be in Iran for three days.

Iran revealed the existence of the site, near the holy city of Qom, last month.
